Teaser Tuesday (9)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is from Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton. I am currently reading an eGalley from NetGalley and I’m loving it so far. Some of the lines Courtney gave to Ellie, the main character, are just to die for. I’ve found myself laughing quite a bit in this story. I want to share some of the funny with you, so my teaser tuesday this week includes a few different lines. Here’s my teasers:

“I’m going to get tetanus in there,” I grumbled.
“Don’t go rolling in piles of dirt and rusty nails and you’ll be fine.”
“You’re an ass.”

pg. 69

“It was just Nathaniel, anyway.”
“Oh, that’s so cute,” I said, pinching his cheek. “He shopped for you. You’re, like, biffles.”

pg. 97

That last one had me cracking up. Do people actually use the word “biffles” in real life?? It’d be funny if they did. I've also added a doodle that Courtney posted to her TwitPic a little while back illustrating that very scene. It's so cute. You should check out her other doodles, too!

These are only a couple of the lines that had me laughing. I feel like I can hear Ellie’s sarcasm in my head, and that makes it so much better. Another thing that I love is how Ellie keeps calling Will different names, such as Batman and a ninja. She also names her car, Marshmallow. Are you curious? Intrigued? I hope so. Angelfire comes out on February 15, 2011 and you have to get a copy. I know I will.

Feel free to share links to your teasers! I’d love to see what you’re reading.
